Medical Cannabis Grow Facilities: Unique Challenges for AEC Professionals
Description: Changes of laws in multiple states have created a burgeoning market for the growth of medical cannabis. While it remains a topic of debate, the demand for facility development is reaching its way across the country, creating opportunities for the AEC industry – but not without raising questions for building and systems designers. Join us for an open forum hosted by The Rock Brook Consulting Group, where we’ll lead a discussion on various topics in relation to medical cannabis facility development, exploring challenges for AEC professionals pertaining to licensing, codes and standards, design implications, technology, and regulatory issues. We invite any professionals with experience in this area to contribute to the discussion. All are welcome. Refreshments will be served.
